Crikey, that is a lot of Helicopters! Should do really well (I think Gyros are our best unit pound-for-pound when all is said and done). One thing you could do (I have no idea how this might affect swedish compy) - make all the quarrellers into one huge Great Weapon Quarreller unit and stick the BSB in it with rune of Stoicism.

I Was trying to avoid making the quarrellers into one big unit because then if they get hit with a massive unit (Ogrebus) or a big spell even if the entire unit goes then they've only gained about 150 points, I suppose i could swap out one for a small unit of Longbeards to get an old grumblers re-roll

This is a similar concept list to some I've seen at ETC tournaments, notably Denmark' s list in 2014  ETC. The thing with this and I don't wish to offend through this humble remark is it needs a lot of practice to get right. I watched it played perfectly through the triple flee by copters, blocking the killer unit and slowing it while you inflict max damage through shooting.  

Your anti-magic is a little light for me and you're paying a premium for Bugman and his merry band of Boozers (rangers) but its hard not to root for this insane gathering.

Had a practice game against Ogres, Bugmans Rangers did well but not amazingly the first game (Wiping out a unit of Mournfang before breaking and running off the board) the bombers where the biggest disappointment to be honest, i think i'm going to swap one of the bombers out for an Organ gun. I'm unsure how to improve the anti magic without swapping out the Master Rune of Grugni for Valaya, i've gone Grugni to give my Longbeards and the quarrellers who are around them a 5+ ward against Magic Missiles and Shooting. I take no offense at being told i need to practice, i usually play a static list so this is completely different.

You could try taking 20 irondrakes with Grim Burloksson, instead of Josef and his ranger's, this will save you a few extra points and provides you with more fire power, also being quick to fire stops fast cav dancing round you, only real down is you comp score will probably hit by this.

Actually Swapping out Bugman and his Rangers for Burloksson and 14 Iron Drakes (Musician, Standard Bearer) and a rune of Slowness drops the Swede Comp score down to 2.9 which is fantastic

I had a look on your comp score, if am right(I could be wrong), it comes in at a 4.4, if you go up against someone with a 14.4 comp, your giving away 1000 points before the game even starts.

the tournament i'm entering hasn't announced whether low list are penalized so im aiming for as low as possible and then if i need to lower it i can do, currently the guys i'm playing are running lists in the 0s or the minuses so my 2.9 (I checked) is pretty mild.

Fun army, I am doing something similiar at the moment. But why use swedish Comp if you go so extremely low? Isn't that just uncomped with extra numbers?

the other guys comp score is about 0.8 or something obscene like that, the comp score just shows how competitive your list is on paper with the lower it being the more competitive.

Are there any missions with banners, like in the BRB? Else I would try and switch a few models around, so you don't end up with a Fortitude of just four.
